From the very start there were always business pressures of some sort or other. It was like a real obstacle race. I will always maintain the fact that for a major successful band, it’s never plain sailing, otherwise there’s something wrong about it. If it’s too easy, you hit your peak and then that’s it! You can’t go around saying, “What a wonderful musician I am! What a terrific song I wrote last night!” You’ve got to make quite sure you get discovered. Part of your talent is making sure your music reaches people. You can’t sit in your room and be a wonderful musician and an outstanding songwriter who writes good music, because no-one is going to hear you —there are lots of those about. You’ve got to learn to push yourself, be there at the right time and learn how to deal with business. These days I think it’s got to be talent plus a very good business sense. You also have to be a bitch to survive!

There are lots of very qualified amazing musicians, but they’re just not successful because you have to have inner sense of how to push yourself and make yourself heard. You have to instinctively have an awareness of all the things that will work to make it successful. The higher up the ladder you go, the more vicious you have to be if you want to stop yourself falling off. It isn’t that I wanted to be tough and vicious, it’s something that is forced upon you. Once you are successful, the baddies move in and that’s when you’ve got to be really strong and try and sift them out — that’s the test of survival. You can’t afford to let anyone get away with anything. It’s like playing dodgems; it’s rock ‘n’ roll dodgems. You’ve got to make sure you don’t get hit too often by the bad people. Everyone who’s successful will always be burnt once or twice. That’s kind of a classic rule. Just call it experience, my dears.

“My mum ­visited more times than Dad and she rang me one day and said, ‘I think you should ring your brother as he’s very, very ill’. I just said to him, ‘It’s not AIDS, is it?’ and he completely denied it. But I knew that it was.

Although his body was failing him, his voice was still strong. It must have been hard when you know you are going to die. How do you cope with that?

When Freddie would see his own videos he would say ‘I was handsome then’ and that is very hurtful as he knew what he was going through,” she notes, adding, “I thought my brother was handsome, still do.”
